Recent TRSAR Missions - Timber Camp-March 25, 2011


March 25 Timber Camp, 30 miles north of Globe on Highway 60
By Bill Pitterle 

On the previous day, a 14 year old scout was reported missing.  South county deputies, South county SAR, and DPS Ranger searched through much of the night. 

Sgt Hudgens called me early in the morning, requesting our assistance at daybreak when DPS Ranger would be back on scene.  Only 6 of us responded. 

We had the help of a number of family members and fellow scouts, and were covering our assignments well when DPS Ranger found the subject around 10:30 AM about 1.5 miles south of the camp. 

This marked our first mission where Gila County Mounted Posse responded as well.  These are the kinds of missions where they will be a great help because they can more easily cover the extended radius a search like this requires.
